“...the controlled lighting of Chiaroscuro on the subject allows me the depth and light/dark values I constantly strive for in my work.” We are delighted to welcome back Steven Lindsay for a first solo exhibition in Edinburgh. With Steven’s work anchored in the UK this year, this is a unique opportunity to view his work as a cohesive collection in Scotland.

Steven Lindsay

Steven Lindsay studied painting at Glasgow School of Art in the 80s. On leaving, he embarked on a successful career as a recording artist in the music industry, returning to his first love painting in 2011. He is very much an artist in ascendance, who although obviously from the European figurative tradition, brings an exciting take on that genre. The drawing and brushwork is classical yet used in an utterly modern context, sometimes demanding, sometimes humorous and always thought provoking. His work is now held privately and publically in collections across the UK, Europe, North America and the Far East.

Estelle Lovatt, the art critic featured on the new BBC Radio 2 Arts Show, described his work as:

“…like revisiting Vermeer in the Dutch Golden Age of painterly skill against the Colour Field of Rothko, all intertwined with an aesthetic twist of contemporary, complex-simplicity. Lindsay using his paintbrush eloquently, capturing painterly conversations between the art history giants of a bygone age and a bygone art.”

He lives and works in Glasgow.
